There’s a saying: “We are what we eat.”

I’ve never found that more true than in the age we live now.

Diseases, sickness, and mental health are all effected by what we eat. Processed foods (foods that are readily available and ‘conveniently’ boxed, packaged, and resemble the scratch and sniff ease of preparing) are genetically-modified, ‘enhanced’, stripped of their nutrients, then tarred, feathered, stomped on, and buried in some other way.  And it’s these foods that are creating havoc in our bodies.

So what’s a person to do?

Eat whole foods. Foods that are fermented, soured, raw, grass-fed, and wild. Foods that heal and build up immunity rather than tear it down. Foods that taste delicious and really are nutritious.

It’s not an easy step though, to change our eating habits when we’ve grown accustomed to the SAD (Standard American Diet) way of life. But don’t despair! There’s a huge movement of folks realizing the need to change our diets and resources and books abound on the subject.

I’ll even add my two cents and let you browse this site to your hearts content. :) Take a peek at some of our articles, the great books we recommend, and our favorite whole food sources.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

I’m Paula - like many of you I wear a lot of hats. Child of God, wife of 17 years, mother of five, reluctant cook, full-time teacher, chocolate-snatcher, and children's author. Various family health issues including Lyme disease and candida has turned me into a 'researcher'. I don't have initials after my name, a degree in anything but motherhood, or a framed certificate on my wall. What I do have is a passion for understanding how our God-created bodies thrive or deteriorate based on what we put in it. Oh, and I also might mention homesteading, homeschooling, fitness, herbs, faith, and anything else I'm thinking about. . . like wow, I need to refill my tea. . .
